Franz Christoph Janneck - a pair (2)


Franz Christoph Janneck - a pair (2) - Old Master Paintings

(Graz 1703–1761 Vienna)
Church fair; Rustic dance outside an inn,
both signed and dated lower left: F. C. Janneck Px. 1729,
oil on copper, each 27 x 33.5 cm, framed (2)

The two paintings are accompanied by an extensive certificate by Dr Klaus Ertz. Dr Ertz writes of the present paintings: “In producing small-sized paintings on copper, Janneck harks back to a tradition of Flemish cabinet painting prevalent during the early 17th century, which due to its delicate manner of painting, was understandably met with great success in the cultivated society of 18th-century Austria. The themes of the two pendants described here illustrate the positive, carefree side of life: both paintings render lively and idyllic village scenes. Colourfully dressed groups of people are depicted conversing, negotiating with vendors, dancing or simply witnessing the ongoing hustle and bustle. Such rustic village scenes had been a familiar subject in the visual arts since Pieter Brueghel the Elder and were obviously highly popular among the wealthy bourgeoisie and nobility.”
